Africa's growing dependence on imported wheat

, : Africa's growing dependence on imported wheat. IAAE Occasional Paper, International Association of Agricultural Economists (4): 36-39

Food production in many African countries has in recent years not expanded fast enough to keep up with population growth. Diminishing self sufficiency and food security and the consequent increase in food imports of many African countries are causing great concern. Amongst all food items, wheat stands out as the one commodity whose influence in consumption seems to be growing rapidly.

Wherever wheat growing was tried in tropical Africa, whether in Angola, Madagascar, Kenya, or Abyssinia, it was found that after 1 or more yrs., rusts appear and act as a limiting factor inhibiting a further extension of the crop. For this reason...

Models of the correlation between winter wheat yield and grain quality have been established for forested and open slope fields. On a forested field, the maximal content of nitrogen, protein, and indispensable aminoacids in grain has been found al...
